AND THE WINNER IS.........


Well I did the drawing at work and just printed out all the e-mails and had one of my co-workers draw the name. And the winner is.........Toni. Congratulations Toni, please send me your snail mail address and I will get the kit out to you. I tried to get a clearer photo but it just didn't turn out. Sorry guys. Stayed tuned though, I will be having another give-a-way in a couple of weeks.

I have so much to talk about today. A couple a weeks ago I invested in another new iron. This iron was a little expensive at $129 but I think that it is worth every penny I spent. I was so sick and tired of my Rowenta's leaking all over the place and ruining numerous ironing board covers. I was getting sick of buying a new ironing board cover at $14 a pop every couple months so this iron will pay for itself. This iron is made in Canada and has its own steam generator which you program for either low or high. I love this iron. You hardly have to even press any of your seams. Did I tell you, I love this iron


I know that there is a lot of talk on the blogs today about the new Mystery BOM that is going to start on The Fat Quarter Shop. If you are reading my blog Kimberly, thank you for organzing this new BOM. I think it is going to be a total success. I am totally in love with this BOM and I can't wait to start and have already orderd the finishing kit and backing. This is going to be one beautiful quilt. I love anything by 3 Sisters. Of course my friends Lisa, Perry, Nicole and Carol are going to join me with this BOM and if anyone else is interested, please let me know and we will include you on our posts regarding this BOM. I know Patchwork Party is going to start on April 1st so I figured I have 2 months to finish that quilt before this BOM starts. I cannot resist the Patchwork Party quilts because they turn out beautiful.
Well off to get some chores done and cooke some dinner. Talk to everyone later.
Hugs, Cindy

Congrats to Toni. The BOM is very tempting but I have so many right now. Your new iron sounds wonderful.

Ginger Patches said...

So the iron sounds great...my Rowenta has been spitting at me grrr. So tell us what brand is it...is there a link...inquiring minds want to know LOL!! Oh I'm thinkin' about that BOM too :)

Vicky said...

I've got two Rowentas out in the iron graveyard in the garage. I hate to throw them away. LOL. Please post the name of your iron!

Oh, yeah, I've ordered the BOM. Isn't that fabric gorgeous! I'm debating Patchwork Party - I'll probably get it, too, because it's my other "favorite" fabric! What the heck .... they are all my favorites! LOL

Congrats to Toni! Thank you for such a fun give-away!

Toni said...

I hate my iron. Tell us the brand and where you purchased it, please.

I have a thing for irons...please tell us the brand. Oh I can't wait for the BOM to start...we're doing Patchwork Party too???????? I'm having way too much fun!

Lisa D. said...

A good iron is a HUGE priority for me! I know you told me before, but remind me what brand that iron is.

Perry said...

Congrats to Toni. Cindy, how come you didn't put a link or the name to this iron. If you are going to tempt everyone, you have to give details, it's the blogger's way, lol. I guess we will have to make you pay a fine. Hmmmm, I will see if I can dream one up. And no, Carol, I am not doing the Patchwork Party, it has templates, lol.
